Prolonged Drought Before Record Snowfall – Gaia Herself Debunks Gore’s Ridiculous Claims

February 12, 11

During the Snowpocalype that hit most of the Northern Hemisphere with massive snowfall and shattering cold, Al Gore had this to say by way of explanation:

In fact, scientists have been warning for at least two decades that global warming could make snowstorms more severe. Snow has two simple ingredients: cold and moisture. Warmer air collects moisture like a sponge until it hits a patch of cold air. When temperatures dip below freezing, a lot of moisture creates a lot of snow

Gore is saying that warmer weather causes more evaporation of water, and thus more moisture in the air, which leads to greater precipitation (in the form of record-breaking snow).

But anyone can Google “snowfall despite drought” and find the following:


North China – Snowfall after drought since October

Alabama – Ice and snow after persistent drought

North Carolina – Record snowfall in December after below-normal rainfall since last July

Missouri – Record making snowfall following 2-year drought

California – Massive snowfall after 3 years drought

Oklahoma – Snow and freezing rain after dry months

Arizona – Plenty of snow after 14 year drought!

Kansas – Trio of snowstorms after chronic drought

Georgia – Crippling snow after months of drought


There hasn’t been precipitation for months or years despite ‘highest temperatures in recorded history’, so where did all the water go? Did it hang out in the upper atmosphere all the way until 2010/11’s Snowmageddon?

Or maybe there hasn’t been excess evaporation at all… After all, there has not been any real warming for the past decade. That would explain why there has been a drought recently, yes?

But that would be akin to calling Al Gore a liar, a liar, and a liar. And we can’t have that, now can we?

Sam Wong in NST, On Climate Change and Plastic Bags

January 11, 10

Sam Wong, writing to the NST on 11 Jan 2010, is concerned about climate change – which is supposedly caused by greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, including carbon dioxide.

However, the main focus of his letter is the use of plastic bags and lack of recycling. Take a look:

CLIMATE CHANGE: More than lip service needed
SAM WONG, Petaling Jaya

THE Copenhagen United Nations climate change summit took place last year and all countries participated.
However, how has the summit inspired us? What are the changes for the citizens on this earth?

Petrol continues to be burned, contributing to the greenhouse gases in the air.

Selangor has the “No Plastic Day” every Saturday, and Penang has extended its “No Plastic Day” to three days a week, but what has the public actually learned from the campaign?

What is the message the government is trying to disseminate?

Many people are against the no-plastic concept.

They complain that they have no plastic bags to pack garbage.

Moreover, some people might not use plastic but they will use other unsustainable bags.

There are also people not using plastic on a particular day, but are not adopting sustainable practices in their daily life.

For example, one of my friends is working in Singapore and she thinks she knows more than the people here.

She shopped every day during the New Year period, but she did not think of maintaining a sustainable lifestyle and shopped using plastic bags every day.

I see people around me throwing paper cartons, used paper and used plastic bottles into the dustbin.

All these things can be recycled. This, then, is the scenario around us.

The people understand what climate change is, but they do not know how to combat it, which can only be done by living a sustainable lifestyle where recycling is the basic principle.

This explains why we are only talking with very little action.

To encourage consumers to adopt more eco-friendly habits, we need education and an awareness programme for the young — and a penalty for their elders.

In actual fact, using and then throwing away non-biodegradable plastic bags actually sequesters carbon into the ground, where it will remain trapped for milennia instead . Isn’t this a good thing according to climate change activism?

As for recycling, it certainly helps maintain a ‘sustainable’ lifestyle – but not in the vein of combating climate change, as recylcing processed use more energy than raw material processing does, expect for aluminium.

So yes, people understand what climate change is, and many claim to know what causes it. However, many people confuse climate change activism with other environmental concerns.

While some claim that climate change activism raises awareness about environmental issues as whole, I am of the opinion that it actually distracts from all issues not directly related to the release of carbon dioxide. Take the Copenhagen summit for example – as it dominated the headlines for weeks, can you name one single initiative that was not about carbon caps?

So Sam Wong or friends of his, as I have said before: Global Warming Theory is to Environmentalism as Blood Letting is to Healthcare.

And oh yes: Global Warming is Unfactual.

In Answer to Lau Bing’s Letter in The Star

December 22, 09

From The Star Opinions 22 Dec 2009:

A few things we can do to help tackle global warming

KUDOS to our prime minister for speaking out at the recently concluded talks on global warming, declaring that Malaysia will collaborate with other UN member nations to help reduce the emission of carbon dioxide and other gases into the atmosphere.

Of course, there is a need to address the following sensitive issues which need someone like our PM to take the lead on and tackle.

1. How do we go about reducing CO2 emissions when the volume of cars on our roads keeps increasing every year by some one million new units?

2. Prominent negative contributions, such as radiated heat and smoke from traffic jams or traffic belching soot on the roads also affect global warming.

3. We use air-conditioners in great numbers for houses, shops, factories and offices and for cars as well. Is the coolant gas used environmental friendly or not?

4. The Government should also set up a watchdog committee to see that hawkers and shopkeepers stop using plastic bags, plastic containers, plastic wrappers, plastic bottles and bowls and cups, as these are non-biodegradable and contribute to global warming.

5. Factories discharging waste gases into the atmosphere must be monitored regularly to ensure that their contents comply with the permitted safety levels.

These are just a few things which the Government should do to kick-start action on containing greenhouse gases.

Subang Jaya.

Lau Bing could stand to know his/her stuff a little better. I won’t be too harsh, as he/she could be just a young ‘un inexperienced in the ways of Wikipedia-ing for information before compiling a letter.

But if you’re Googling your name, Lau Bing, then please know that:

1) Agreed on this, but for different reasons from yours. Rewind the clock 50 years and build up a useable public transport system like Singapore’s. Or barring the availability of Hiro Nakamura, get the government to drop the duty on foreign cars so we can all buy a Prius.

2) Radiated heat is actually supposed to be discounted as ‘urban heat island effect‘. Researchers are supposed to adjust their data to compensate for the local (not global) effects of cities on temperature. However, in practise, they often ignore this fundamental – thus leading to artificial rises in temperature. And FYI, soot fights global warming.

3) A simple Google or wikipedia search would reveal the answer – some are.

4) Plastics that do not biodegrade actually prevent the release of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere – as the carbon is all sequestered into the plastic polymer, which never degrades and thus never releases it. So plastics = good for ‘fighting global warming’, bad for landfills and biodegradation. Try not to mix up your environmental issues.

5) Agreed on this, but for different reasons from yours.

In conclusion, do please take a look at Global Warming is Unfactual (especially the Worldwide Weather section) and see if it changes your views on how much of a threat global really is.


The Sun: Copenhagen, Global Warming & Blizzards – Lolwut???

December 21, 09

From The Sun (Malaysia), Monday 21 Dec 2009:

Copenhagen Global Warming Blizzard Lolwut

Global warming causes blizzards and record snowfall, therefore we must all bow before Copenhagen to stop it… Lolwut???

Oh wait, maybe it’s a dig at how delegates arrived at Copenhagen as a blizzard dumped 4 inches on snow on the place (a first in 14 years).

I suspect that someone on the editorial board of The Sun is a closet skeptic. In that case, I am totally giving props to him/her/them – no mocking meant with my lolwutting!

But seriously, that record snowfall is completely in line with recent worldwide weather.

Global warming – lolwut?

Malaysiakini Letters – Climate Change Mitigation = Insanity

December 14, 09

From Malaysiakini letters.

Be sure to check out the comments by Mr M who accuses me of living in a dream world where I can’t see the effects of a warming world, yet obviously did not even bother clicking on the single link to see the citations and evidence (including photos) I collected.

Standard troll who barely skims through a post he disagrees before attacking a straw man fantasy.


Climate change: do we really want to join this insanity?
Scott Thong Yu Yuen
Dec 11, 09

I refer to the letter Climate changes but no changes in M’sian strategy. Let me say that I agree totally with any efforts to adapt to climate change.

Since the beginning of our planet’s history, climate has been changing – from the ice ages to the Medieval Warm Period to our present time. It is only sensible for us to keep adapting to the constant change that the planet has wrought since long before we lit the first cooking fire.

However, the writer seems to focus only on strategies to mitigate climate change – carbon neutrality, renewable energy, environmentally-friendly products, Copenhagen COP 15. All of these measures are based on the theory that carbon dioxide in the atmosphere will drastically change the climate through the phenomenon known as global warming.

Quite frankly, the theory that carbon dioxide is the main driver of global temperature has been battered left, right and centre by recent events.

First, the actual data shows that for throughout the known temperature record stretching back tens of thousands of years, temperature rises first – followed 800 years later by carbon dioxide. Got that? Temperature rise causes carbon dioxide increase. In essence, this is the reverse of what the global warming theory says, unless the modern world somehow follows totally different laws of physics from the past.

Second, even as carbon dioxide levels have been steadily rising with every passing year, there has been no increase in recent temperatures. The BBC reports, ‘For the last 11 years we have not observed any increase in global temperatures…even though man-made carbon dioxide, the gas thought to be responsible for warming our planet, has continued to rise’.

Even global warming researchers concur on this point, with the East Anglia Climatic Research Unit (CRU) researchers admitting in the Climategate files: ‘I’ve just completed Mike’s Nature trick of adding in the real temps to each series for the last 20 years (ie from 1981 onwards) and from 1961 for Keith’s to hide the decline.”

Another email says, ‘The fact is that we can’t account for the lack of warming at the moment and it is a travesty that we can’t’.

Climategate has rocked the world of science with its admissions of no recent warming, coupled with a conspiracy to tamper with the data so that the end result would fool the public and policymakers into seeing warming. I suggest that the reader do an Internet search for the term.

Third, the real world itself testifies against global warming. Arctic ice levels are the same today as in 1979, with sea ice increasing at record rates. Antarctic ice levels are today at the highest levels ever measured, with continental ice increasing at record rates.

In 2008, China had its coldest temperatures in 100 years, Pakistan in 70 years, Sydney in 50 years, Mumbai in 40 years, and Takijistan in 25 years. Snow fell in the deserts of Saudi Arabia, Iraq and the United Arab Emirates for the first times in known history. More evidence here.

Fourth, the Copenhagen Treaty and its predecessor the Kyoto Protocol are a waste of time, resources and public attention. If carbon dioxide doesn’t actually cause global warming, then what is the whole point of restrictions on carbon emissions?

If Kyoto and Copenhagen were cost and drawback free, then there would be no problems with implementing the recommendations – just for fun!

However, the facts belie that fantasy. For Germany alone, in 2005 alone, adherence to the Kyoto Protocol cost 6.2 billion Euros in increased energy costs. Continued adherence is estimated to result in a loss of 18.5 billion Euros by 2010 – and that’s without applying the stricter parameters negotiated at Copenhagen.

How about more recent results? Australia’s Kyoto-styled Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme is due for 2010. Starting steps towards it have already caused electricity prices to shoot up 22%, with a predicted doubling of energy costs by 2015.

And what has all this massive spending actually accomplished? Unfortunately, nothing – since the Kyoto Protocol was enacted, the European Union only had a 1.5% decrease in carbon emissions, instead of the Kyoto Protocol target of 8% decrease. Signatory Japan even had an 8% increase, and Canada a 22% increase.

So even if carbon dioxide does cause global warming which leads to catastrophic climate change (and it doesn’t), restrictions on carbon emissions simply do not achieve their stated goal – while tossing literally billions into the furnace, during a global recession no less!

Do we really want Malaysia to join in this insanity? For I recall that Einstein had another, more well-known adage: ‘Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results’.

Copenhagen is just a repeat of the failed policies of Kyoto, in fact, done more extremely. To expect it to achieve anything but waste even more billions is insane. Malaysia should have no part in this madness.

And yes, Einstein may have been right when he said, ‘We can’t solve the problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them’.

But I’ll counter with two other adages: ‘If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it’ and ‘Don’t use a hammer to swat a fly’. That is, if human activity is not really causing catastrophic climate change, then don’t implement measures that cripple our economic capabilities while achieving absolutely nothing. Instead, spend some of those wasted billions on adapting to the climate change that we cannot control.

Don’t get me wrong – I am strongly supportive of real environmental measures such as rainforest conservation and bio-diversity preservation. I am even in favour of weaning off fossil fuels – gradually and guided by market forces, not prematurely and forced along by draconian laws.

But please – let’s not waste any more time, money and public attention of global warming. We could better spend those billions lost through adherence to carbon limits on providing clean water to Third World countries, cleaning up Beijing’s choking smog and fixing our injured economies.

Global Warming Theory is to Environmentalism as Blood Letting is to Healthcare

November 25, 09

The following dialetical illustration is inspired by and partly based on a commentor’s remarks.

In fact, he can probably spot plenty of his almost exact words in there somewhere… So kudos to him, eh?


Blood Lettist: You! You blood-letting denier!

Blood Letting Skeptic: What? Me?

Blood Lettist: Yes, you! Why do you spend hours blogging about how you think blood letting isn’t proven science and mocking those who are trying to save our precious bodies? You should use your time and effort to promoting healthcare instead of convincing people we’re just fine!

Blood Letting Skeptic: But I’m not saying we’re just fine. All I’m saying is that blood letting theory is based on faulty assumptions and is contradicted by available data.

Blood Lettist: You claim to reject the hard science based on data. But there is already a consensus on the science!

Blood Letting Skeptic: Just look around! The exact opposite of what blood letting theory claims is happening. More and more people have lots of blood in their bodies, yet their health is improving, not worsening as blood letting theory claims.

Blood Lettist: Whether you have decided to accept the science or reject it, even you know that the homeostatic balance of our bodies is out of whack and WE are the reason. Stop being part of the problem and help contribute to the solutions we so desperately need.

Blood Letting Skeptic: Yes, I admit and accept that our health is under jeapordy. Where do I ever deny it? I acknowledge the need to stop heart attacks, cancer and stroke. Just because I oppose blood letting theory does not mean I reject all other health issues. I simply think that blood letting will not accomplish anything for our health. Don’t conflate blood letting with healthcare in general.

Blood Lettist: Healthcare as a whole will benefit from awareness and mitigation efforts raised by the blood letting issue.

Blood Letting Skeptic: I disagree. If blood letting is not a real issue, then it is a waste of time, effort, money and public interest that could be far better focused on proven health issues. I mean, how does applying leeches or puncturing a hole into the head do anything at all to reduce obesity and fight tooth decay?

Blood Lettist: You must be on the payroll of Big Aromatherapy. There are those people who help and contribute to protecting our fragile health and those who delight in twisting scientific information in order to ingratiate themselves and maintain the status quo that is destroying what we have left to hand down to future generations. You obviously fall into the latter. Shame on you and your narrow minded view of the big picture.

Blood Letting Skeptic: Wait a minute… It isn’t blood letting skeptics who have been twisting the data to hide what they know – that our blood pressure is NOT rising!

Blood Lettist: I’m afraid attitudes like yours are the reason our children will be left with nothing but the dregs we decide not to consume or destroy.

Blood Letting Skeptic: Look who’s talking. I am sure I have far less blood in my skinny frame than the fat and bloated politicians, celebrities and bureaucrats who travel around the world getting tranfusions of blood into their veins while telling us to shed our own.

Blood Lettist: Enough of this denial! Just stop being part of the problem and help contribute to the solutions we so desperately need.

Blood Letting Skeptic: I really am trying to contribute to the solution to the problem. But we get nowhere fast if we make a start based on ignoring the facts and continue onwards guided by wrong assumptions. If blood letting theory is wrong, then we are only making existing, real problems worse by putting all our focus on the wrong priorities.


Wow, the perfect matching lol from Comixed:

Al Gore’s New Book – Yet More Scaremongering (and Photoshopped) Fakery

November 19, 09

Al Gore is a pathological liar. He has now apparently even resorted to Photoshopping out the Arctic, Photoshopping oceans over coasts, and Photoshopping in several hurricanes onto a photo of the Earth.

From Watts Up With That and Moonbattery via Prison Planet:

A midget Southern Hemisphere cyclone is off the coast of Florida, another hurricane is sitting on the equator off the coast of Peru — and the Arctic Ice is gone (perhaps it is summer) and the Florida Peninsula is half gone

There are other differences I am sure you can find — but the hurricanes are just nonsense…

Maybe it’s Gore’s vision of what the future world will look like if global warming continues unabated. But even that theory fails.

The Arctic ice is at the same levels as 1979, meaning there is no net melting.

Similarly, Antarctic ice is at the highest levels ever recorded.

Hurricanes are at a 30 year low.

The oceans have actually been getting cooler since 2003.

And as the BBC admits, there has been no warming in 11 years.

All this while concentrations of CO2 – the gas that supposedly causes world-ending global warming – continue to increase.

Many more facts, graphs and photos with citations at my collection, Global Warming is Unfactual, and excellent overview for those uninitiated into serious global warming debate.

What can we expect, really, from a guy who barely passed his science papers in university and thinks the Earth’s interior is millions of degrees hot?

No wonder he was greeted with a protest in Portland.

Al Gore really is a pathological liar (much like that other guy he supported for President).

He lies tons in his film. (Which most people actually ignored.)

He lies 180 degrees about the relationship between carbon dioxide and temperature.

He lies about drowning polar bears.

He lies about reducing his massive energy use and carbon footprint.

He lies about his true motives for scaring us about global warming.

So to wit: This is the man who is at the forefront of the global warming fearmongering movement. How do you think this reflects on other supporters/salesmen of the global warming farce, like lying NASA head James Hansen, blindo NASA scientists and researchers who intentionally skew data?

Al Gore Fails on Sciences Other Than Global Warming Too

November 19, 09

Al Gore got a D grade in Natural Sciences at Harvard:

For all of Gore’s later fascination with science and technology, he often struggled academically in those subjects. The political champion of the natural world received that sophomore D in Natural Sciences 6 (Man’s Place in Nature) and then got a C-plus in Natural Sciences 118 his senior year.

When John C. Davis, a retired teacher and assistant headmaster at St. Albans, was recently shown his illustrious former pupil’s college board achievement test scores, he inspected them closely with a magnifier and shook his head, chuckling quietly at the science results.

“Four eighty-eight! Terrible” Davis declared upon inspecting the future vice president’s 488 score (out of a possible 800) in physics.

“Hmmmm. Chemistry. Five-nineteen. He didn’t do too well in chemistry.”

But that was then. This is now: He thinks that the Earth’s interior temperature is several million degrees:

Al Gore: It definitely is, and it’s a relatively new one. People think about geothermal energy — when they think about it at all — in terms of the hot water bubbling up in some places, but two kilometers or so down in most places there are these incredibly hot rocks, ’cause the interior of the earth is extremely hot, several million degrees, and the crust of the earth is hot …

FYI, the Earth’s core is about 5400 degrees Celsius or 9800 degrees Fahrenheit, neither of which approaches even 1% of Gore’s Bizarro World figure. But it’s okay, he’s only off by about 990,000 degrees or more. Say’s a lot about his grasp of global temperature fluctuations, hmm?

Our Sun, however, is 13.6 million Celsius or 24.5 million degrees Fahrenheit at its hottest. With a grasp of temperature measurements like this, maybe that’s why Gore keeps thinking the planet is catching fire even though even the BBC admits there has been no warming in 11 years!

But remember, global warming that will doom humanity is real and factual. Real I tell you, factual!!!

We must all stop global warming now!!!! (Or backdated to 11 years before we start trying to stop it now.)

Malaysiakini Letters – Global Warming: Don’t Naively Believe Everything

April 21, 09

Hah! I got it in at last. Eat this, global warming hysterians!

I re-added the links to news and science sites in the citations (in non-bolded links below), as Malaysiakini removed them. They left in some of the links as they saw fit, however (in bolded links below).

Or just head on over to Global Warming is Unfactual for more facts. Malaysiakini had removed some of them.

From Malaysiakini letters 20 April 2009:

Global warming is unfactual don't naively believe

Global warming is unfactual don't naively believe

Global warming is unfactual don't naively believe

Global warming: Don’t naively believe everything

Scott Thong | Apr 20, 09 4:52pm

I refer to the letter Global warming – getting the facts right.

Allow me to respond by citing five simple facts about global warming that are seldom heard.

1. According to the National Center for Policy Analysis [pages 5-8], only 1~2% of the atmosphere is made up of greenhouse gases. Of that amount of greenhouse gases, only 3.62 percent of it is carbon dioxide.

And most significantly for proponents of anthropogenic global warming, only 3.4% of that carbon dioxide is emitted by human activity. That is to say, even if all human activities were immediately shut down tomorrow, 96.6% of the carbon dioxide would not be affected.

[Which also means that only 0.28% of the greenhouse effect is human-caused.]

2. The wavelength of radiation that carbon dioxide absorbs is not only very narrow, it is also already mostly absorbed by other gases – such as the water vapour the writer mentions.

And this is also affected by the law of diminishing returns – once carbon dioxide and other gases absorb all this radiation, then adding more carbon dioxide does not have any effect – the radiation is already being absorbed in full. (Source: Page 13 of this PDF)

3. Historical data shows that temperature always rises first, followed 800 years later by carbon dioxide levels. This is the reverse of what global warming theory claims.

4. How is temperature measured, anyway? Nasa relies mostly on ground-based measuring instruments. However, many of them are placed in really stupid locations where they are exposed to a lot of temporary heat.

You should really take a look at the hilarious photos of temperature sensors placed in hot car parking lots, next to air-conditioner exhaust vents, inches from exposed light bulbs, and near flaming barbeque grills.

Don’t you think this biases the temperature measurements towards the hotter end of the scale?

5. Global warming? What global warming? Where? Where? Does anybody even read the news anymore, or are they content to parrot decades-old talking points about melting ice caps and rising oceans? Extra credit to you if you know that:

The oceans have been cooling since 2003. (Source: Nasa)

Sea ice is growing at the fastest rate ever recorded. (Source: Arctic Research Center)

Arctic ice is back to 1979 levels, meaning no net melting has occurred in 30 years. (Source: Daily Tech)

The melting scare in recent years might have been caused by scientists having undermeasured the amount of ice by 500,000 square kilometers due to a sensor glitch, as they now bashfully admit. (Source: Bloomberg)

Antarctic ice is at the highest levels ever recorded. (Source: Heartland Institute)

[And it is proven that the ice is expanding! (Source: The Australian)]

The year 2008 saw colder temperatures across the United States. (Source: National Climatic Data Center)

It snowed in Saudi Arabia during their coldest winter in 30 years. (Yes, it snowed in the Desert Kingdom!) (Source: Arabian

It snowed in Iraq for the first time in 100 years. (Source: Reuters)

In 2009, it snowed in the United Arab Emirates for the second time in history. When was the first time? In 2004. (Source: Associated Free Press and Terra Daily)

China had its coldest winter in 100 years. (Source: Reuters)

Pakistan had its coldest temperatures in 70 years. (Source: The Indian Express)

Australia had its coldest summer in 50 years. (Source: Bloomberg)

Mumbai, India had its coldest winter in 40 years. (Source: India News)

Takijistan, formerly part of the Soviet Union, had its coldest winter in more than 25 years. (Source: npr)

There was record cold in Vietnam. (Source: Earth Times)

A rare snowfall occurred in Jerusalem. (Source: BBC)

All this chill is probably why the fearmongers’ language has gradually been shifted to ‘climate change’ instead of ‘global warming’. So do tell me, how does the alleged carbon dioxide heating up the planet cause all this cooling climate change?

Finally, the writer insinuates that there are ‘forces bent on denying the scientific evidence related to climate change’, that is, ‘businesses whose profits depends on humankind continuing unabated on this downward path, and the politicians funded by these businesses.’

Tell that to Al Gore, head cheerleader of global warming doom-saying – whose film ‘An Inconvenient Truth’ was officially ruled by the British High Court to be unscientific and one-sidedly political.

He whose house uses 22 times the electricity as the average American family and who has earned more than US$35 million in profits from his company Generation Investment Management LLP that sells carbon offsets.

Maybe that is why more and more people have felt that global warming is exaggerated since around the time ‘An Inconvenient Truth’ was released and why global warming is the currently the lowest concern on people’s minds.

[Addition: Two thirds of people no longer believe that global warming is human caused!]

Don’t naively believe everything a pundit claims. Heck, don’t even believe what I am saying – go and check it all out for yourselves. All the above facts are backed up by citations from legitimate news sources that can be viewed here.


Quick Facts That Debunk Hysterical Global Warming Claims

March 26, 09

Join the Global Warming is Unfactual group on Facebook!

Take the quick poll question!



Anthropogenic global warming theory is the idea that human activities that release carbon dioxide are causing the Earth’s temperature to rise drastically.

Anthropogenic global warming theory has the following assumptions:

1) Carbon dioxide is the main cause of rising global temperatures
2) The main source of this carbon dioxide is from human activities
3) The temperature rise will be quick and large
4) The temperature rise will cause massive devastation and disaster
5) We must act now to stop the release of carbon dioxide

But that is only one side of the story. Have you ever heard, seen or read the other side?

The following collection of facts all come with citations and links. They are but the tip of the not-melting iceberg of data that refutes global warming junk-science.

Read on and ask yourself:

What do the following FACTS mean for purported human-caused global warming?



– Meanwhile, on planet Earth, the oceans have been cooling since 2003. (Source: NASA)

– Sea ice is growing at the fastest rate ever recorded. (Source: Arctic Research Center)

– Arctic ice is back to 1979 levels, meaning no net melting has occurred in 30 years. The graph below is resized smaller, but see the jagged lines? That’s the levels of ice – fluctuating a bit, but always around the same amount over 30 years. (Source and full size graph: Daily Tech)

– Perhaps the recent fears that the Arctic was melting is due to the fact that scientists undermeasured the amount of ice by 500,000 square kilometers (the size of California!) because of a satellite sensor glitch. So much for careful and accurate science! What else have they miscalculated thus far? (Hint: See the SCIENCE AND SCIENTISTS section later on) (Source: Bloomberg)

– Antarctic ice is at highest levels ever recorded and still expanding. The purple shaded area shows the record ice cap growth this year in Antarctica. (Source: The Australian, Heartland Institute)

– Here’s some visuals of just how much more ice and snow there is in Antarctica over 20 years. The structures below were on ground level in the mid-1960s; by the time the photos were taken in the late 1980s, they are already almost completely buried by the additional snow! And Antarctic ice is at record high levels today, 30 years onwards. (See the very purple picture on this page.) (Source: The Next Ice Age – Now!)

The electrical transmission towers above are 115 feet tall. Of that, 85 feet of height has been buried.

The above construction crane was used to build those tall towers!

– The year 2008 saw colder temperatures across the United States. (Source: National Climatic Data Center)

– It snowed in Saudi Arabia during their coldest winter in 30 years. Yes, you read that right – it snowed in the DESERT KINGDOM! (Source: Arabian, photo from Watts Up With That? collection)

– It snowed in Iraq for the first time in 100 years. (Source: Agence France-Presse)

– In 2009, it snowed in the United Arab Emirates for the second time in history. When was the first time? In 2004! (Source: Associated Free Press and Terra Daily)

– China had its coldest winter in 100 years. (Source: Reuters)

– Pakistan had its coldest temperatures in 70 years. (Source: The Indian Express)

– Australia had its coldest summer in 50 years. (Source: Bloomberg)

– Mumbai, India had its coldest winter in 40 years. (Source: India News)

– Takijistan, formerly part of the Soviet Union, had its coldest winter in more than 25 years. (Source: npr)

– Record cold in Vietnam. (Source: Earth Times)

– Rare snowfall occurred in Jerusalem, Israel. (Source: BBC)



It is claimed that the more carbon dioxide is put into the atmosphere, the hotter the planet gets. But is this what the data shows?

– Historical data shows that temperature always rises first, followed 800 years LATER by carbon dioxide levels. This is the REVERSE of what global warming theory claims. (Source: Six respected climate and environment scientists)

– Carbon dioxide, for all the hype and panic, forms only 0.0383% of the entire atmosphere. That is to say, in every 2611 buckets of air you collect, you will only collect 1 bucket of carbon dioxide. (Source: Wikipedia on carbon dioxide concentration)

– Meanwhile, how much carbon dioxide is released in a year? The amount of CO2 being released by humans is only 3.4% of all CO2 emissions!

According to the National Center for Policy Analysis, only 1~2% of the atmosphere is made up of greenhouse gases. Of that amount of greenhouse gases, only 3.62 percent of it is carbon dioxide. Of that amount of carbon dioxide, only 3.4% is emitted by human activity.

So humans contribute only 0.28% of the greenhouse effect. What does this tiny little number actually mean? To put it another way, in every 40,624 buckets of atmosphere, human activities will only add 1 single bucket of carbon dioxide every year.

And we are supposed to ‘save the planet from global warming’ by halting this 3.4% of 3.62% of 2% of the atmosphere of human carbon dioxide emissions? Even if all human activities were immediately stopped tomorrow, 96.6% of the carbon dioxide would be totally unaffected! (Source: National Center for Policy Analysis, pages 5-8)

– How does this tiny amount of carbon dioxide claimed to cause global warming? Supporters of global warming scaremongering say that carbon dioxide absorbs a particular wavelength of radiation from the surface of the Earth, which would otherwise escape off into space. Thus, carbon dioxide traps this radiation and heats up the planet.

However, the wavelength of radiation carbon dioxide has been shown to absorb is actually so narrow, it is already mostly absorbed by other gases such as water vapor! (Source: Page 13 of this PDF or first graph here)

What is more, once carbon dioxide and other gases absorb this radiation, then adding more carbon dioxide does not have any effect – the radiation is already being absorbed in full. (To visualize this, imagine a flashlight beam being blocked by pieces of black paper. Once there is are enough pieces of black paper to block the beam totally, adding more pieces does nothing. All the light is already being absorbed.)



The IPCC (International Panel on Climate Change) claims that a ‘consensus’ of scientists agree that global warming is a real and urgent danger. They are basically saying that ‘all’ serious scientists believe in global warming.

But what does the science actually show?

100 + 400 + 650 + 31000 prominent scientists DENY global warming claims. (Sources: Science and Public Policy Institute, Senate Minority Report, Telegraph Newspaper UK)

– The American Physical Society offers mathematical proof that the IPCC’s calculations on global warming are WRONG. (Source: Christopher Monckton, former advisor to Margaret Thatcher)

– How is temperature measured, anyway? NASA uses ground-based measuring instruments. However, many of them are placed in REALLY STUPID LOCATIONS where they are exposed to a lot of temporary heat. Examples: Hot car parking lot, air-conditioner hot air vent, barbeque grill! Don’t you think this affects the temperature measurements? (Source and more photos: here, here and here)



Al Gore’s film An Inconvenient Truth has been a major influence in getting people to believe that global warming is destroying our world.

– But did you know that this film has been found to have at least 35 major scientific errors? (Source: Science and Public Policy Institute)

– This caused the British High Court to officially rule that the film was unscientific, and may only be shown to schoolchildren if the film’s one-sided political slant is clearly stated to them. (Source: Investors Business Daily)

– An Inconvenient Truth portrays the Antarctic as warming up, with the Larsen Ice Shelf melting away. However, it does not deem to mention that this part is only 2% of the Antarctic, while the rest is COOLING. (Source: Wall Street Journal)

– What about the ‘poor, drowning polar bears that are going extinct’ that Al Gore and others love to bring up in order to pull at our heart-strings? The truth is, there are 5 times more polar bears today than 70 years ago (25,000 today versus 5,000 in 1940). And the polar bears featured in the photo below? Not in any fear, suffering or danger of drowning! Basically, Al Gore either lied or was ignorant. (Source and citations: This article, and polar bear numbers from Polar Bears International)

– In fact, more and more people began thinking that global warming is OVER-EXAGGERATED since around the time An Inconvenient Truth was released! (Source: Gallup poll)

– With an entire two thirds of those polled not believing it is caused by humans! (Source: Rasmussen Reports)

– While global warming is currently the UTTER LOWEST AND LEAST IMPORTANT concern on people’s minds! (Source: Pew Research Center)



Maybe global warming panic is losing momentum because Al Gore – the foremost outspoken champion of stopping global warming – has proven to be a huge hypocrite when it comes to not releasing carbon dioxide.

– His home uses 20 times the energy as a standard American home, even while he tells us to conserve energy for the sake of the planet. (Source: Tenessee Center for Policy Research)

– Sorry! That information is outdated. His home now uses 22 times the energy as a standard American home! (Source: Tenessee Center for Policy Research)

But don’t worry! Al Gore tells us to slow the advance of global warming by reducing our carbon output, but if we cannot do so personally, we can still buy carbon offsets – pay money to plant trees, support solar power, etc. So he too buys carbon offsets to make up for his polluting lifestyle.

– Guess who owns a carbon offsets company? Al Gore himself. He is the founding partner and chairman of Generation Investment Management LLP. (Wikipedia entry here)

– And where does he buy his carbon offsets from? From his own company. (Source: WorldNet Daily)

– Thanks to this marvellous scam, Al Gore has earned $35 million in profits at our expense. (Source: Bloomberg)



And remember: 34 years ago, the world was panicking about GLOBAL COOLING! (Source: Newsweek from 1975)
